In this project guide, we show you how to make the popular DHT22 sensor. This DHT22 easily connects to a variety of microcontrollers to send digital temperature and humidity readouts. You can monitor temperatures on your phone, create an alarm to signal when humidity reaches a certain level, or simply read statuses on your computer.
